Obituary for James Edward Hippler

James Edward Hippler, 84, son of the late Edward Gerard Hippler and Helen Rose Krupitzer, formerly of Greenville, SC, died peacefully on Friday, October 5, 2018, with his family near his side.

Jim was born January 28, 1934, in Cleveland, OH, and graduated from St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, OH, and Villanova University in Philadelphia, PA, with a degree in Chemical Engineering.

Jim married the love of his life, Fran Nist, on September 8, 1956, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Cleveland, OH. He moved his family from Cleveland, OH, to Freeport and Rockford, IL, then Hickory, NC, before settling in Greenville, SC, where they lived for 31 years. After retiring as Plant Engineer from Kemet Corp., he worked at Radio Shack in Simpsonville where he enjoyed interacting with customers of all ages.

He is survived by his wife and six children: Suzanne Schultz (Jeff Kurland), Chicago, IL; Steve (Rita), Peoria, IL; Jeff (Pam), Charleston, WV; Linda Wastyn (Ron), Port Byron, IL; Kristine Sturkie (Curtis), Virginia Beach, VA; and Carla Penel (Fred), Cary, NC along with 13 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

Jim’s life revolved around his family and his devotion to his wife of 62 years. He never met a stranger and was always quick to make a friend or a joke. In his free time, he enjoyed cheering his Villanova Wildcats to 2 national basketball championships. He graced our lives with his smile, his crystal blue eyes, his quick wit, and his sharp mind. He is sorely missed.

Funeral services will be 1:30 pm Thursday October 11, 2018, at Wright and Salmon Mortuary in Peoria. Visitation will be Thursday from 12:30 pm until 1:30 pm at the funeral home. Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery immediately following the services.
